crash. Sometimes a drummer may hit two different crash cymbals in a kit at the sametime to produce a very loud accent, usually in rock music.Crotales:Crotales, sometimes called antique cymbals, are percussion instrumentsconsisting of small, tuned bronze or brass disks. Each is about 10 cm (4 in) indiameter with a flat top surface and a nipple on the base. They are commonlyplayed by being struck with hard mallets. However, they may also be played bystriking two disks together in the same manner as finger cymbals, or by bowing.Their sound is rather like a small tuned bell, only with a much brighter sound,and a much longer resonance. Like tuned finger cymbals, crotales are thickerand larger; they also have slight grooves in them which give their sound moresparkle. The name comes from the Greek crotalon, for a castanet or rattle.
8Drum Set:Drum set, trap set (a term using a contraction of the word,"contraption"), or simply drums — is a collection of drums and otherpercussion instruments, typically cymbals, which are set up on stands tobe played by a single player, with drumsticks held in both hands, andthe feet operating pedals that control the hi-hat cymbal and the beater forthe bass drum. Glockenspiel:Glocken: bells and Spiel: set) is a percussion instrument composed of a set oftuned keys arranged in the fashion of the keyboard of a piano. In this way, it issimilar to the xylophone; however, the xylophone's bars are made of wood, while theglockenspiel's are metal plates or tubes, thus making it a metallophone. Theglockenspiel, moreover, is usually smaller and higher in pitch.Hit-Hat Cymbals:Combination of two cymbals and a foot pedal, all mounted on a metal stand. It is apart of the standard drum kit used by drummers in many styles of music including rock,pop, and blues. Hi-hats consist of a matching pair of small to medium-sized cymbalsmounted on a stand, with the two cymbals facing each other. The bottom cymbal isfixed and the top is mounted on a rod which moves the top cymbal towards the bottomone when the pedal is depressed (a hi-hat that is in this position is said to be "closed" or"closed hi-hats").Jing Ring:Musical instrument in the percussion family consisting of a frame, often of woodor plastic, with pairs of small metal jingles, called "zills". Classically the termtambourine denotes an instrument with a drumhead, though some variants may nothave a head at all. Tambourines are often used with regular percussion sets. They canbe mounted, for example on a stand as part of a drum kit (and played with drumsticks), or they can be held in the hands and played by tapping or hitting theinstrument.Marimba:Percussion instrument consisting of a set of wooden bars struck with yarn or rubbermallets to produce musical tones. Resonators or pipes suspended underneath the barsamplify their sound. The bars of a chromatic marimba are arranged like the keys of apiano, with the groups of two and three accidentals raised vertically, overlapping thenatural bars to aid the performer both visually and physically. This instrument is a type
